Vampires Need Love Too! #2 by Brian Cattapan
Or at least it would be available if the online store was working as of 7/16/08, but donâ€™t worry, itâ€™ll be fixed soon, and this line of text will be gone forever. In the meantime you can always just e-mail me with a list of the comics youâ€™d like. A big pain in the ass in this world of a couple of clicks followed by your order being completed, but itâ€™s temporary. I seemed to be mildly confused in the review for the last issue as to why so many of the pages seemed to end in bad puns, and in retrospect itâ€™s simple enough: these were done as daily online strips, one page each. Naturally that means there has to be some sort of payoff on each page, and this is where my traditional dislike for the four panel strip comes in. Luckily this issue tells a decent enough story on its own. Itâ€™s still all about this sad vampire wandering around, trying to find love, and this issue also has said vampire running into a variety of zombies, the bat and lizard from the previous issue, a brief girlfriend resulting from a blind date (more about this momentarily), a new pet, and Death. This brief girlfriend had a few moments where it seemed like pages were missing, I guess because this book doesnâ€™t print all of the online strips, maybe because some of them didnâ€™t make the cut, or maybe they just refer to things that happen off-panel. Comics can be tricky that way. OK, thanks to the wonders of the internets I was able to just go over to Brianâ€™s website and it looks like plenty of the pages in this book arenâ€™t even posted there, so the missing pages will remain a mystery. By now youâ€™ve seen enough of Brianâ€™s work on this page alone to know if you like the guy, if so, youâ€™re sure to love this one too.
